    Extravagant clusters of white-centred carmine-red flowers in June and July and glossy mid-green leaves. The long pliable stems of this vigorous rambling rose are perfect for training over an arch or pergola. Best in an open sunny site it makes an excellent companion for creamy-white varieties such as Rosa 'Rambling Rector'.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
